If you want to go to the Copernicus Science Centre with your family or friends, you can find all the information that will help you organise your visit here.
You can purchase the tickets to the Copernicus Science Centre and the Heaven of Copernicus Planetarium online at bilety.kopernik.org.pl (1.5 hours before the planned visit at the latest) or at the ticket offices on the day of your visit. Only tickets that have not been sold on-line can be purchased at the ticket offices. The fact that tickets are not available on-line means that that you will not be able to buy them at the venue, either.
We encourage you to plan your visit ahead and buy tickets on-line. This way you can avoid unnecessary waiting and disappointment, which might happen when you find out that all the tickets have already been sold out for that day at the ticket office.
Your tickets and confirmation can be found in the "My account” tab on the bilety.kopernik.org.pl website.
In the online sales system, payment is made at the end of ticket selection process through the PayU payment operator and banks working 24 hours a day – you may not pay for your tickets via a wire transfer.
The list of banks handling such payments include, but is not limited to: Multibank, mBank, Alior, ING, Pekao, Meritum Bank, Millenium, WBK, Inteligo, Eurobank, Credit Agricole, PKO S.A., Alior Sync, Nordea Bank, Citi Handlowy, Idea Bank, PBS Bank, BOŚ Bank, Deutsche Bank.

You can also pay for your tickets using BLIK on your phone at the ticket offices in the Centre. If your payment card is denominated in a currency other than PLN, you can use DCC to find out the exchange rate that will be used for the transaction. All transactions are covered by the Best Exchange Rate Guarantee Programme.
If you purchase your tickets online, you will receive them to your e-mail address. All tickets – both those bought at the ticket office and the ones bought online – have a QR code, which is used to open the entry and exit gates. The QR codes contain details of your visit to the exhibitions at the Copernicus Science Centre, the planetarium and the Family Workshops.
The ticket to the exhibitions at the Copernicus Science Centre entitles you to enter the exhibition area once, which means that you cannot cross the gates at will. The only exceptions are holders of Copernicus Club cards and tickets for a visit to the Copernicus Science Centre and the planetarium (both individual and group tickets), as well as tickets combining a visit to Copernicus and the Laboratory (group tickets only).

The exhibition area features more than 400 exhibits. It takes about 5 hours to watch them all, but if you are in a hurry, you can see everything in 2-3 hours. The Buzzz! exhibition is available only for children under 5 years of age and their guardians. The tour of this exhibition can last a maximum of 70 minutes.
With your ticket, you can also see a play in the Robotic Theatre or a show at the High Voltage Theatre, and during the weekend you can also take part in activities at the laboratory Minilabs (only for persons over 9 years of age). Additionally, with a separate ticket, you can pay a visit to the planetarium.
The activities in laboratories for individual visitors, conducted only in Polish, take place on Saturdays and Sundays (three times a day) and run for 45 minutes. Plays and shows at the Robotic Theatre and High Voltage Theatre, conducted only in Polish, take place several times a day and run for about 20 minutes. The planetarium shows run for 45-50 minutes.
We do not have guides, but at any point in time you can ask for the help of animators (they wear red t-shirts) – they will be happy to explain how the exhibits work and tell you about the scientific phenomena demonstrated by the exhibits.
